Horizon

If you look at the Arch from the side, the very top has the most gentle of curves. You notice the slope when you are in the observation deck inside the top but it's no big deal. Then, as you move down the leg, things go downhill in a hurry, to borrow an expression. When you stand at the foot, you see a horizon part way up, like the way the earth drops away on the ocean.

For someone who doesn't live in St. Louis, I've spent a lot of time looking at the arch. But your photos always show me something new. Thanks Bob.
